    I Cannot Bear it Any longer

    "Very well," Loara replied, and off they went back towards the Tavern. Loara began to think about their fight, and how well synchronized their attacks were against the bear. Though they had just met, they worked well as a team and the bear didn't seem to have stood a chance. "Oh, do you need me to help carry anything?" she asked not too long after they had started walking. The fog was still around, but the sun coming up from the clouds was a nice feeling, tinting everything warmly and beautifully. She wondered what would happen now. Would she continue to do quests for the Tavern? Would she return home? Or would she go somewhere else? @Godspell

    Loara delivered the final shot. It flew through the air and pierced the bear cleanly and deeply. The bear laid still quickly, like a candle snuffed out by a strong wind. It was done. The arrow augmentation took quite a drain on Loara's energy, and she felt dizzy and out of breath. This was the risk of casting too many spells on her arrows in such a short time, but for the fight to be over, it was worth the effort. They had completed the difficult part of this quest; now they had to give the pelt to their client. She recomposed herself, returning to her standard ladylike posture and moved to Leon's side, but not before fixing her veil. When she was close enough to Leon that her soft voice would be able to be heard, she asked, "Do you have any skill in skinning? I have some experience with rabbits and foxes, but nothing of this size." @Godspell OOC: Who is our client again? Is it the bartender from the Tavern?

    As Leon cast his own spell to further root the bear in place, Loara was already moving to her next spot; closer to them but still a fair distance away. Next, the hind leg. It would be troublesome if the bear got loose, but enough damage to it's hind legs would not only prevent the beast from standing on them for height advantage, but also hinder its ability to escape. Loara moved quickly, her veil flipping once and a while with her face shown in mere flashes. It could not be helped, and Loara was too focused on the hunt to worry about Leon seeing her eyes. She drew back and fired again, this time the mark hit true. An arrow of steel pierced itself into the bear's hip joint, and the bear released another cry of anguish. It flailed around in the dirt, almost desperately, but Leon's Iron Maidens Cage kept it locked in place. She could see her ally concentrating on keeping the spell in effect, so she decided for her third, and hopefully last, arrow to go for the heart. Loara pulled another arrow from her quiver. Drawing it back she whispered, "Lance". This one she had to charge up with the magical energy from the earth below her solid stance, as well as the energy flowing through her own veins. The longer she holds, the more likely the arrow will burst through whatever it hits; wood, steel, flesh, anything. That is the purpose of Lance. To penetrate relentlessly and leave nothing in its path. The arrow head glowed with a pure steel grey. The bear was huge and she was much closer now; she highly doubted she would miss. @Godspell

    Loara watched as Leon laid a two-stage attack on the beast; first the heated spell and second a well-placed slash. Afterwards, the bear was charging him. Now. She slowly released her breath and whispered, "Ensnare." Then, she shot her arrow. As it flew a light green aura was around it, reminiscent to the colors of leaves and the earth itself. Though it pierced the bear's jawline it missed its true mark; the eyes. Loara intended to blind the foe but at least her Ensnare will do some good. From the arrow, ghostly chains spun around the bear's whole form, locking it in position. The beast seemed to have tripped over itself and skidded across the ground, slowing before Leon. This was the ranger's spell that Loara knew would prove effective, but the bigger the creature the shorter the duration. For a beast this big, they will not have long until the bear can move again. Loara pulled another arrow from her quiver. @Godspell

    "Okay. We should also lead it away from the town. Just in case," she replied. Loara slowly moved away from her ally. Knowing that Leon was going to engage with the bear, she looked for a spot where she can see the bear clearly, as well as remain a good distance away. Being a ranger has its many perks, but close combat wasn't her strength; hence the long staff as her backup. She ended up moving to another tree with a slimmer trunk, and around it were bushes. Good enough. It seems like the bear still hasn't noticed where they are yet, but its head suddenly looked up. Then slowly it arched back, lifting its front paws and standing on its hind legs. He looked monstrously huge now as he sniffs the air. Any moment it will find them. Drawing the arrow back on her bow, she waited for the right moment to fire. @Godspell

    Loara watched as Leon examined the trees. These were huge, violent gashes, engraved deep into each trunk. Definitely signs of the beast they were looking for. Then the roar shook her. It resonated and sent chills down her spine. It was loud. The bear must be ginormous to make such a sound. Loara had hunted many creatures in her time as a ranger. From timid bunnies to snarling wolves to even tracking missing people. But this...this bear might not even be a bear at all. Still, they had to do something about it. There is no backing down now, just as they were closing in on it. Fear has no place in an adventurer's heart. Loara turned to Leon and nodded to him while taking out an arrow from her quiver. "I am, Leon." As they cautiously carried on through the woods, Loara heard rustling not too far from them in the large dense shrubbery. She had experienced almost too many ambushes in her time, and did not want to risk a giant bear being the ambusher this time. She quickly grabbed Leon and pulled him behind a wide tree with her. And there it was. It...looked like a bear, at least. But its size was much larger than any alpha male. No...this was the alpha of alphas. Its fur was dark, maybe even black, and it had a thick scar on its nose. Loara stifled a horrified gasp. This was no mere bear...this was a monster. "Leon," she whispered, "I don't think it's seen us yet, but it won't be long until it can smell us..." @Godspell

    Loara matched Leon's gaze and saw what he was looking at; a food stall not too far from the woods. "Agreed," she replied just as softly, as people nearby could be hearing and the two adventurers would not want an uproar. Partially for the sake of the people, but also because it might scare the bear off, and it would just come back another time. She began to move into the crowd, but it felt like crossing a rapid river. People bumping into her, having to weave through them going in different directions. Eventually she got to the other side, gripping her bow tightly. She had just gotten this bow, and she prayed it would not break on this mission. @Godspell

    Loara smiled under her veil. "You seem very knowledgeable with weaponry, Leon." With her new bow and a quiver of arrows, she was ready to hunt the bear. She looked around for the nearest entrance to the forest that seems to surround this area. But the many, many people who were walking around in different directions distracted her focus. Nevertheless, she doubted the bear would go anywhere far from where its usual victims are; the roads between towns perhaps. She couldn't hide the faintest bit of excitement for this. "So," she turned to Leon again. "Shall we go on a hunt?"

    "Oh, that's a good question," she replied. She gently patted her coin pouch that was attached to her belt. "I do have money, but now that you mention it I'm not sure if they will accept Elven coin." Then they had passed the final bit of fog before it was relatively clear before them. They had passed a cream colored building with dark red shingles on its roof. The two adventurers had arrived at the town. It was a bustling town, with people of many races going in all directions. At the center, a large fountain with cherubs spilling water out of their jugs. Buildings of similar colors to the first one they had passed varied in size and shape, with even more people going in and out of them. Loara was familiar with this type of town, where everything seemed to be busy, but she was still in wonder of it all. It had been a while since she was in civilization, since her journey mainly consisted of being in the wilds. It didn't take them long to find the weapons shop in a market. The hanging axe sign gave the shop's location away. Once inside, Loara felt cramped by all of the store's wares leaning against each other and hanging off the walls. Loara walked up to the counter. "Excuse me sir," she spoke softly again. "I would like to purchase a bow and a quiver of arrows." The tall burly man looked up from his ledger and eyed her. He didn't smile. "Sure. Pick one off the walls and bring it back here." This was the time Loara was waiting for. Picking a new bow. She turned back towards the rest of the store and walked up to the section that had bows. She eyed each one carefully. Among the long bows, there bows of many woods, each with a different ornamentation. But one stood out very easily to her. This particular bow had the handle swirled, probably for easier grip. It was made of a sturdy-looking wood, but also is flexible enough to bend, and had been varnished black. It was gorgeous, and Loara loved it already. She carefully lifted it off its hook and returned to the counter. "This one please," she said. "Do you take Elven coin?" "Yes, we do," the store owner replied. This made Loara give a small sigh of relief. She paid the price for the bow and arrows. She strapped the quiver on her back and felt like her old self again. She went up to Leon and showed him her new bow. "I got this one. What do you think?" @Godspell

    "Thank you," she replied warmly to his words. Yes, many would understand that her personal quest is a noble one. Her only concern at this point was being too late to return home; with or without the cure. Should her sister perish before she could return with the cure or at least spend her last moments with her...Loara shook away the thought of it. She needed to focus. A while had passed and through the fog the spires of a building were in sight ahead of them. They were steadily approaching the town. "The bartender didn't quite tell me where in town the weapons merchant is, but it should be fairly simple to find it," Loara said. She was looking forward to getting a new bow. Her old one was made of polished red oak, just like her staff, and had intricate blue lines gently etched into it. That was her bow; her pride and her power. But it was broken and lost. Hopefully her new bow will look just as nice, if not nicer. @Godspell

    Loara nodded at key points of Leon's story, such as his fondness of learning and his sincere curiosity of the new world around him. She looked ahead of her the entire time, somewhat cautious of the fog rolling onto the path in front of them, but her Elven ears were attentive to him. She kept her staff in hand, using it like a walking stick, the sound of it hitting the cobblestone path loud and crisp, breaking the eerily quiet atmosphere. As he asked the same question back to her, she continued to look on. "I never needed to leave my home before. But I did always want to. Although, I did not travel so far from my homeland to sightsee, like you may be." Loara paused for a moment. "I search for a cure for my sister's illness. It's unlike any other disease the healers in my homeland have seen, so I decided to take it upon myself to find whatever is needed to heal her. I had heard of the Tavern from my archery master, and I figured someone there may know about the illness or the cure." @Godspell

    "Yes, I believe the bartender told me it's this way for a while." Loara pointed down the cobblestone road with an open hand. "Even with this fog, the town will be easier to spot as we approach it." With a nod, they set off down the path in cool daylight. It had felt like ages since she walked calmly beside someone, as her journey to the Tavern of Legend was long, life-threatening, and lonesome. It had her relax a little, and be confident that nothing was going to attack them on such a fairly short journey. "So, Leon," she began to say. "what brought you to the Tavern? If I may ask." @Godspell

    The door swung open and Loara stepped out with more confidence than when she walked in. She greeted Leon with a small nod. "I am almost ready to go on this quest. I just need to buy a bow from the nearest town. I broke my old one on the way here. Would it be okay if you accompanied me while I do this before we go after the bear?" she said to him. Loara knew this would take time off their task, but it was far better to be safe than sorry. @Godspell

    Tavern of Legend Season 3

    Loara put a finger to her chin. Walk to the nearest town and buy a bow, or borrow a bow from here? The decision was difficult, for she had to guess whether or not there would be dangers between the tavern and the town that would require her to fight. Although, with her staff and Leon's sword and spells, it shouldn't be a big problem... "Thank you for your offer, but I would prefer to fully own a bow again." She said, bowing her head to the bartender and walking away and out the door, following her comrade who left before her. @supernal

    "And I," the lady placed a hand where her heart would be. "am Loara Everstead. The pleasure is all mine." she smiled, although the veil may still filter it. She retrieved her staff, her backup weapon. It was red oak and varnished well enough to prevent splinters. She was decent at using it, and was excellent at keeping enemies at a fair distance, but a large stick might not do much for their quest for a beast like a bear. A bow and a quiver of arrows, however, would be much better suited to this task. She turned to both her new ally Leon and the bartender. "Before we embark on this quest, I must ask. Where may I find a weapons shop? I need to get a bow. I am much better at archery than pole-arm styled combat." @Godspell @supernal
